    Clean off with Fenwicks Motorhome Cleaner, I used to find their Bobby Dazzler which is used to wash off the cleaner quite good. As last post states you will never stop streaking, I have a PVC now and find its conventional painted steel 100% easier to keep clean than a fibre glass style coachbuilt etc. Used polish on previous fibre glass vans, nice to start with but gradually seemed to attract even more dirt found Fenwicks simple to use and best overall but I know there are many different views.

    Try your local POUND-STRETCHER they do a trigger spray of 'tar & insect remover' at £1 a bottle, a generous spray then wash as usual. Simples

    Elbow Grease - in a spray bottle, cost around 99p and it is brilliant, will take away the stains with just one squirt. Fantastic for cooker, shower anywhere, we use it at home and in the motorhome.

    It beats the expensive Fenwicks hands down, although we do use the Fenwicks to wash and (supposedly) seal the paintwork.

    After seeing it suggested on here, we tried baby wipes last week and they worked well.

    I have a commercial washing brush, which is just like a broom with a hollow handle with a hose pipe connected to it, so the water flows through the handle and the brush. Makes washing the van easy, and when you hold the brush just above those PVC panels on the side of the van, so the water goes behind them, its amazing how much muck washes out from behind them.

    Any stubborn ones, I wipe away when polishing by using a drop of WD40.

    Hi, Baby wipes certainly work, they are also very good for removing dead fly's etc, someone somewhere suggested Lidls Bathroom Mousse, i have purchased a spray can of it but haven't used it yet, so not sure how well it works, has anyone else tried it yet.

    I use Lidl bathroom mousse and it does the job well, the only thing is the stains do come back:cry:.
    Anybody got any recommendations on how to get a shine on the Fiat bonnet, mine always seems dull even after a Polish.

    A cloth soaked in baby oil. But once it rains it will be dull again .... the bonnet not the car. When you see kitchens advertised on tv and they look all shiny, apparently they are wiped over with baby oil, I am informed.
